"I am a father from Canada who had to fight for visitation with my daughter. As most people in this position know, time with our children is precious. Despina gets that! Her compassion and integrity combined with her commanding presence in the courtroom is unmatched. Without Despina, I would not have the amazing relationship with my daughter that I enjoy today. I am forever grateful! She may be small in size, but she’s a pitbull in the courtroom!" - Kyle Cardinal
